- Watch out for a rebound from 1.4403-1. 4410 levels as in the light of an upbeat UK data, such a rebound could translate into a convincing break above 1.4441 followed by a rally to 1.4480-1.45 levels.
- On the lower side, an hourly close below 1.4403 would shift risk in favor of extension of losses to 1.4368 levels.
